All-Alumni Dinners

Date(s) - January 10, 2019
6:30 pm - 9:00 pm


Our Jan. 10 Alumni Dinners are now full. Sign up using the link above to be added to our waiting list.

It’s time for one of our favorite events, FOCUS Alumni Dinners!

If you haven’t had a chance to attend in the past, the dinners offer a unique opportunity to connect with other leaders in an informal setting. Simultaneous small dinners of 6-14 people will be held across the region in alumni homes giving you a chance to meet graduates from other classes and programs for an evening of engaging conversation. These dinners are open to all graduates and current participants in our FOCUS leadership programs.

These dinners would not be possible without the support of our generous alumni hosts who open their homes and provide a meal. When registering, please mark all dinners you would be interested in attending; we ask that you select at least three. Once dinners are confirmed, you will be contacted by your host with additional details, including address and directions.
